The pally matchup to SOME other classes had become uneven. Have you tried to kill a frost mage recently as a pally? Or an arcane mage for that matter? Maybe a bleed spec rogue? How about a Bladestorm warrior when your bubble's on CD? Cat druids pretty much require a bubble to beat at this point, so do boomkins.Just because pallies blow up people they can get close to doesn't make them OP. They're just OP in BG's where they can run into a group when their bubble is up and rape face. Put them in an arena and they don't do so well. Any kiting class is almost guaranteed to win against ret still.Are you noticing a pattern in all the calls for nerfs to classes? It's the burst, stupid. Arcane mages one-shot people. DPS druids one-shot people. Bleed rogues one-shot people. Affliction locks one-shot people (kinda). The classes are tuned for Lvl 80, and some of the nerfs are hitting paladin DPS way too hard. Being able to drop 10K burst on a clothie right now = win. Being able to drop 14K burst on a Lvl 80 clothie with 20K health = kited paladin.My only consolation is the compensation line. I'm hoping that means bigger shield slams for Prot, and bigger Holy Shocks for holy.
